PRAISE FOR GEORGE R. R. MARTIN’SA SONG OF ICE AND FIRE
“What’s A Song of Ice and Fire? It’s the only fantasy series I’d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings
. . . . It’s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don’t read fantasy.”—Chicago Tribune A Game of Thrones
“Reminiscent of T. H. White’s The Once and Future King,
this novel is an absorbing combination of the mythic, the sweepingly historical, and the intensely personal.”—Chicago Sun-Times A Clash of Kings
“Martin amply fulfills the first volume’s promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written.”—The Denver Post A Storm of Swords
“Riveting . . . a series whose brilliance continues to dazzle.”—Patriot News A Feast for Crows
“Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best. In fact . . . this is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien.”—Time From the Hardcover edition.
About the Author
George R.R. Martin
sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast
, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
